topranked de­fense is ea­ger to test it­self against the neme­sis Ten­nessee Vols again.

UCF's game against Mem­phis called off due to Hur­ri­cane Irma has been resched­uled for Sept. 30.

The Knights and Tigers had to can­cel non­con­fer­ence games and fi­nal­ize pa­per­work, slightly de­lay­ing the of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment un­til early Thurs­day evening.

The kick­off time and TV sched­ule have not yet been set.

The Amer­i­can Ath­letic Con­fer­ence an­nounced Thurs­day morn­ing nu­mer­ous league school sched­ules were be­ing ad­justed to help USF and UConn make up their game called off due to the storm. The re­lease noted of­fi­cials were work­ing to resched­ule the UCF-Mem­phis game.

UCF coach Scott Frost made it clear he was frustrated the Knights didn’t play Mem­phis be­fore the storm hit on Fri­day, Sept. 8, and is ea­ger to face the Tigers.

“We need to play Mem­phis,” Frost said. “In my opin­ion, we should have played them that Fri­day night. They were in town ready to play. Peo­ple above me made the de­ci­sion not to play that one. We were ready to play it. I look for­ward to play them if we get a chance.”
